And then Squirrel.
I ran across the cutest little freebie in the Pumpkin Seed Stitchers' group on FB and just had to immediately stitch it.
It's called Haunting Love, by T. A. Smith Designs. And the love? Rats. RATS!!
|This picture is most color correct, btw.|
So I printed out the freebie and thought about it for a bit. I have a piece of Sparklies fabric I was going to do the Ghostly Mandala (from JustCrossStitch) on, but I went with this piece instead. I dug through my thread stash and used Fiesta for most of it, I was going to do it for nearly the entire piece but ran out, so I switched to Black Coffee for the tree/border/bats, and I used Hibiscus to satin stitch the heart.
So this was my IHSW weekend, not so much with the assassinating or TWOctobering, but hey, rat love :) I'm super pleased with this piece and I'm thinking of maybe trying a flat-fold finish for it.
